I can’t wait until some burly 18 year old high school senior starts hanging in the girls lockerroom because, you know, he ‘identifies’ as female that day. This is so friggin’ retarded I can’t belive that parents are standing for it.
Cherry Hill school district is set to adopt a policy allowing transgender students to use facilities associated with their gender identity… Students will be able to use both bathrooms and locker rooms of the gender with which they identify, as well as use a gender neutral bathroom and can request alternative changing areas.
The policy is supposed to help ensure all students have equal access to educational programs and activities. A district official says the policy is meant to show the board’s commitment to its students and to comply with federal and state laws. The district says it is illegal to discriminate based on gender identity or expression. Adapted from : CBS Philly

“… Upon arriving in the morning, according to the Associated Press, each student at the CCC-George Miller preschool will don a jersey with a stitched in RFID chip. As the kids go about the business of learning, sensors in the school will record their movements, collecting attendance for both classes and meals. Officials from the school have claimed they’re only recording information they’re required to provide while receiving federal funds for their Headstart program.
However, the story has caught the attention of both the ACLU and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, who have expressed alarm at the potential infringement of privacy rights. Together, they have submitted a letter of concern to school officials, including a request that they clarify what security precautions were put in place with the program.
This is not the first time a school has tried to track its students with RFID. In 2005, according to the AP, another grade school in California handed out RFID badges and was met with an equal amount of outrage from the ACLU and privacy rights watch dogs…”
